The Care and Maintenance of Glass Doors

Installing a glass door in your home is a great way to add character and style to your front entrance. Whether the entire door is made out of glass or just parts of it, your home can benefit from the inside as well as the outside when you install glass. Not only will it look great for people who see the home from the street, but glass doors allow natural light to fill the living room, hallways and other areas of your home.

If you do have glass doors in your home, however, you’ll want to make sure that you are caring for them properly. The glass isn’t cheap, and not doing proper maintenance can lead to major problems down the road. You’ll also need to do plenty of routine cleaning to keep the glass doors looking good.

Here are a few things to keep in mind if you have glass doors in your home:

Don’t Slam Them: This might seem obvious, but slamming a glass door can cause it to shatter immediately or lead to cracks and stress fractures that get worse over time.

Clean Regularly: The key to keeping glass doors looking great is to clean them on a regular basis. Fingerprints, rain and snow are just some of the things that can make glass doors dirty. You can use warm, soapy water and a soft cloth for your routine cleaning.

Don’t Use Harsh Abrasives: Trying to use harsh abrasives as a cleaning shortcut can lead to a disaster on glass doors, leaving the surface scratched. Instead, invest in a mild abrasive to use for deep cleaning. You can find these at any home repair store.

Tools Needed to Tend to Your Artificial Grass

Article written by Artificial Turf Supply Commercial & Residential Division.

One of the main benefits of making the switch to artificial grass is the low maintenance required. Unlike with natural grass, you never need to worry about mowing, trimming or reseeding your fake grass and it will require almost no water. The occasional watering to help clean the lawn or cool it down is all you need.

However, despite the reduced need for regular upkeep, you will have to perform some occasional maintenance in order to keep your synthetic lawn looking great. The good news is that you don’t need to do a lot of work and you only need some basic equipment. Make sure you have these tools handy before you start your artificial turf installation so you’ll be ready to do the required upkeep on your lawn:

Rake or Soft Brush: It’s important to remove any organic debris such as dead leaves from your artificial lawn. If not removed, this debris can sink to the base of your lawn and rot. Eventually, this can lead to mold and fungus or damage your turf. Using a rake or a soft brush on your lawn will help to get rid of this debris. You can also rake or brush against the grain to get the blades of your lawn to stand up straight.

Leaf Blower: Another weapon in your arsenal against organic debris is a leaf blower. Using the power of a leaf blower can get out small particles of debris without damaging your lawn.

Mild Detergent: If you ever have a spill (such as food or drink) or have a child drop gum on your artificial lawn, mild detergent is the perfect solution. Just apply and scrub with a soft towel to avoid stains.


Artificial Turf Supply Commercial & Residential Division is the choice of many home and business owners looking for top quality fake grass for their properties. Their team of experienced synthetic turf experts can help you with the purchase and installation of artificial lawns.
